Fake coffee branding with @luftaffe
“If you want to create a coffee-themed design, coffee cups are the best choice,” says Russia Instagrammer Illarion Gordon (@luftaffe), who posts photos of coffee cups that he has illustrated with unusual drawings. “My wife is a barista, and I use coffee cups as a place for my ideas. I just took a felt tip and drew a design on the white cup.” As a designer by day, Illarion’s experimentations on coffee cups has allowed him to explore a new perspective on branding and develop his illustrations. “I create cups with melancholic and existentialist designs that would never exist in real life from real coffee brands.”
“Dennis Basso was the perfect choice for my wedding day. He is a classic American designer, and knew perfectly how to harness both my inner Grace Kelly coupled with a touch of sensuality through his designs.” Union said. For More
A Vintage Van Delivers Vintage (and New) Literature
You’re probably well-acquainted with the idea of the food van. The more sartorially minded may have even visited a fashion truck. Now, it’s translated into literature aimed at tourists.
In June 2013, three entrepreneurial literature lovers from Portugal’s capital created a nomadic bookstore that moves around the city all year long, bringing Portuguese literature to international visitors.
Tell a Story — that’s the van’s name — offers a collection of more than a dozen Portuguese classics that have been translated into English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. There’s something for everyone, from the evasive and sad verses of Fernando Pessoa — “To be understood is to prostitute oneself” — to Antonio Lobo Antunes’ dense and moving accounts of the country’s post-colonial legacy.
The vehicle, a gorgeous 1975 Renault Estafette, has character, but the soul of this literary omnibus is its driver, Francisco Antolin. He’s a 36-year-old Lisboner who loves books and talking about them with whoever stops by.
“We wanted to help people discover Portugal through our literature, because stories are a great way to understand a culture,” he says.
